Following the logic of the video guy, LeBron has become Jordan Farmar 2.0 even though their games are NOTHING alike and LeBron is WAYY better. LeBron is Drazen Petrovic 2.0 or Dennis Johnson 2.0. LOL. smh.

Kevin Johnson 2.0???!!??! Kyrie is NOTHING like KJ. Kyrie's handles are waayyy tighter than KJ and Kyrie's finishes at the rack are much cleaner too. Kyrie has HoF potential. KJ was just a good player. Again, this guy in the video has no idea what he is talking about.

This game looks like utter crap!! While everyone is badmouthing LeBron, i'm just looking at the graphics and animations and thinking WHAT THE HELL HAS CHANGED?? This is an actual Joke if this is next-gen graphics. If it truly is i'm done with this game. Like actually done. 

The game mode is a tolerable idea however the standard of gameplay and graphics look so samey that I refuse to pay the inflated £40+ for this.

Why in God's name would they give this freeloader his own mode? Isn't this the same guy who, through collusion, latched onto an already established NBA championship winning team in order to get his rings? Isn't it the same guy who tried and failed to do it with his own team year after year after year? The guy who simply gave up on that team in game 5 vs. Boston and just stood around waiting for the game to end? Did you see Jordan, Magic or Bird doing ANY of those things? Fuck no. Give THOSE GUYS their own game mode. Stop making this Lebron clown out to be a winner. He's an unbelievably talented player. But a champion he is not.

"Take control of the king"

You mean the guy who got a cramp and got carried out like a baby off the court ?

Yeah I can't wait! Basketball players...

No thanks, I'll stick with last year's flawed version. If they take it off the servers, oh well, not getting any money from me for this crap.No one like LeBron except Stern. smh

Useless modes instead of actual game improvement... The only serious explanation is that they focused on the next gen version, but it's also something that I kinda doubt...

Not a fan of Lebron getting his own mode but I'll reserve judgement for when I can see and/or play it.

Yup, wasted a bunch of time on a stupid mode rather than fixing any of the actual glitches.  Lebron?  What?  Dude won 2 ships because of a hax team and they already treating him like jordan?  smfh.  I wonder if they would have had tony parker if they didn't give game 6 away lol. This entire thing is terrible.

Charles Barkley's opinion of the game mode in NBA 2K14: Turrible.

since EA took themselves out the game with a "self-inflicted rocket to the face", 2K Sports seem to be getting lazy.....this is just last year's game with the "LeBron" feature....

For the Current gen versions this is exactly what I expected. Gameplay is improved but nothing drastic. Meanwhile 2k has refused to say anything about next gen at all, so I assume they have something major up their sleeves for when they start discussing the Ps4 and Xbone versions.

Hate to say this, but looks like NBA Live 14 will finally de-Throne 2k14 and no pun intended! =(

2K's mistake is that not everyone loves LeBron, there is probably more haters out there than fans

Might be the first time in years I pass on an NBA game.  This doesn't look any different from last year.  Maybe NBA Live will step it up this year...

and it's official, i'm not buying this crap this year. actually it was official when they said no crew mode for ps4, but this is just the worst mode ever on a sports videogame, and those graphics could be even worse than last years'

So, why should I buy the game once again....?

I think gamespot used 2k13 footage while they talked about 2k14....or atleast that's what I hope

I hope this isn't actual gameplay footage. If so, then 2K is just charging us $60 for the same game with new DLC. This is the same thing that happened to Madden. *sigh* Are we really that stupid???

@PJAspire They have made it pretty clear that all the footage (outside of the lebron cameo w/ facial expressions) was current-gen.

Hope that clears things up :)

@RoadStar1602 he's won 2 rings already, that in itself makes him a champion. I don't like lebron that much- but I wouldn't call him a clown or say he was a freeloader..

You could argue that lebron decided to join a higher-profile big-market team willing to spend money on a supporting cast like the the players you referenced above (Jordan on Bulls, Magic on Lakers, Bird on Celtics).


Hope this helps :p Personally I wanted Lebron to move to New York but can definitely see why he chose the heat at the end.

@D-run Oh god I hope so, because I'm sticking with NBA 2k13 for the rest of this gen.

@gujames @RoadStar1602 Michael Jordan was drafted by the Chicago Bulls and won all of his championships with the Chicago Bulls. Magic Johnson was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers and won all of his championships with the Los Angeles Lakers. Larry Bird was drafted by the Boston Celtics, and won all of his championships with the Boston Celtics. They did not "join a higher-profile market." These were the teams that drafted these players. 

Lebron, on the other hand, realized he could not win a championship like those guys did and he quit. He gave up and he and Chris Bosh, through collusion, piggy-backed onto Dwayne Wade's already established championship team. He didn't earn any championships at all. He colluded, even taking pay cut, to get the best two available players onto the same team with Wade in order to establish a sure-fire championship team because he himself knew he was no champion. He earned nothing. He piggy-backed. He colluded. He cheated. If it had been the owners arranging this instead of the players, they would have been fined, the team would have been broken up and they probably would have lost their franchises.

Lebron is no champion. Period. And he sure as hell doesn't deserve to have his own game mode.
